Samsung Galaxy S4

The Samsung Galaxy S4 was launched with much funfare at Times Square NYC on the 14th of March.

Watch the launch video:

The phone runs on a 1.6GHz processor and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS. It has a slightly larger touchscreen display (5") as compared to the S3 (4.9"). As for memory, the S4 has 2GB Ram and 16GB internal storage.

I was really curious about the camera and I was not disappointed - it has a huge 13 megapixel camera. However, as I have learnt in the past, higher mega pixels does not necessarily mean better images.

Iguess, the feature which makes the Galaxy S4 stand out from it's competitors is its eye tracking technology. The Smart Pause feature will stop videos when you look away and you can actully scroll pages up or down by using their Smart Scroll feature.

Another first for this phone (if I am not mistaken) is its ability to take videos from both the front and rear facing cameras AT THE SAME TIME.

Looking forward to getting my hands on one.
